Tax Information

Your IPERS pension benefit is subject to federal income tax and, for Iowa residents, state income tax. All retiring members must complete Form W-4P, which is included with your benefit application.

You have various withholding options. Before completing the Form W-4P, you should:

  • Consult your tax advisor.
  • Review the accompanying instructions.

You can update your withholding after benefits begin at any time by completing a new IRS Form W-4P. You may access your previous years' forms online through My Account.

Form 1099-R is used to report the distribution of retirement benefits such as pensions, annuities or other retirement plans. If you received a distribution of $10 or more from IPERS, you will receive Form 1099-R to use in your tax preparation.
